Everything about this is great - the subject, composition, light, exposure, muted colours. The only thing I find distracting is the vertical dark line (pipe?) on the background building, which intersects with the umbrella. :)

Yes Paul, that's much better. What do you think? :)

Thats just next door to where I take Mrs Walti for Nursey training courses!

I can't tell whether it's an improvement as you've removed the original... but it looks very good to me!

How obliging it was for the owner to remove the down pipe and for the model to agree to the shot being taken again! :)
I do not like photo manipulation beyond the basic adjustments such as contrast or mild dodging and burning, but removing or adding stuff in a photo is off limit for me. I would say the original (now sadly removed) was authentic, warts and all and leaves a lasting memory. Ps in the modified version the remnant of the dp is visible, I'm conscious because I know it was there in the first place.
My 4d, Paul. Hope you don't mind.

Steve - I appreciate your input. I always do!

I know that you don't like photo manipulation, but I have a different view. For me, all that matters is the end result. I understand that if I were doing photo-journalism or natural history then accuracy would be paramount, but all I'm trying to do is to produce an image that conveys some mood, emotion, aesthetics - whatever you call it. I don't care whether it reflects reality or not.

I do agree though that the edit was rather rushed. There are indeed a few artefacts of the edit remaining. I need to go back and clean it properly.

I appreciate that Paul.

Good subject to ground, by the way.

I may be wrong, of course - it was just an opinion! :)
